Daily Distraction: Listen to (and read about) the War on Drugs' 'I Don't Live Here Anymore'
The title track from frontman Adam Granduciel's forthcoming album is a must-listen, and Pitchfork has an interview about the new record
"I was lying in my bed, a creature void of form/Been so afraid of everything, I need a chance to be reborn,” War on Drugs frontman Adam Granduciel sings at the start of "I Don't Live Here Anymore," the title track from a forthcoming album due out Oct. 29. Like most tunes from the War on Drugs, it's a song meant for arenas, with big guitars, '80s synths and, in this track, mantra-like background vocals from Lucius.
Give it a listen below, and while you're at it, head to Pitchfork to read Sam Sodomsky's interview with Granduciel, which touches on the songwriter's newfound resilience and energy, his new baby (named Bruce, because of course) and how he learned to be a singer.
